Ansible logo Season's Greetings

Ansible 197 (December 2003) saw a rare return of Hazel's Language Lessons, with the splendid Greer Gilman providing a selection of essential words from Shetland dialect. Your cruel editor cut this for space reasons, and Greer has since browsed further in that invaluable sourcebook A Glossary of the Shetland Dialect by James Stout Angus (Paisley: Alexander Gardner, 1914). So here are many more useful phrases for the tourist. Merry Christmas! – Dave Langford
